100-Word Challenge, Day 306


Excalibur In Welsh legend, King Arthur's sword...
There, on the dingy concrete floor of the elf tunnels, lies a treasure that could make a man a king. Ancient armor and weapons of intricate and beautiful design that no mortal artisan could replicate, lay discarded and unused for ages. “They’re beautiful,” I whisper in awe.

“Yes they are,” she says. “They were good times when your kind and ours fought the darkness side by side.” She sniffs and wipes away a tear before reaching into the pile and pulling out a long sword of shimmering steel decorated with golden vines of ivy about the cross-guard and pommel. “Try this one out. I made it myself.”
